I was skimming the anime for the episode where Ox, Harvar, Blackstar, and Maka fight because I couldn’t remember if Harvar had any lines or not and I picked the wrong episode and THIS HAPPENED AND I CAN’T STOP LAUGHING
I have this headcanon that, as a lightning weapon, when Harvar gets flustered, his electric field responds in kind, and so if he doesn’t keep his hair tied back and something startles him or gets him worked up - POOF.
Ox tries not to laugh and usually fails - it’s not his fault Harvar puffs up like a startled cat when startled. It makes him a lot harder to take seriously, that’s for sure. Hard to intimidate someone once they’ve seen you puffed up like a startled cat.
I started out just wanting to draw Harvar sans visor, and with his hair down, and it escalated from there.
Harvar got his revenge for me drawing this embarrassing comic of him - I shit you not, while drawing this, I was indirectly struck by lightning. (but no worries, the zap wasn’t strong enough to do me any harm)
